Sports, sports, sportity sports! I have a lot to write about for my 96th blog post. 4 more to go!
First some Soccer news : Yesterday Barcalona superstar Lionel Messi was carted of the field when he tripped on the Benfcia goalie and missed a left foot shot. In the champions league thats a BIG loss for FC Barcalona. Messi’s literally the only scorer on Barcalona and that makes them win games. It’s was already bad for Barcalona when they lost star defender Puyol. Quick update from scorecenter is : Messi starts light workout on Friday after knee bruise in draw vs Benfica.
Now B-ball : Yesterday was a big day in B-ball. First Laker news : KB30K! Kobe Bryant of the Lakers made big history last night. He got his 30 thousandth pt yesterday vs the Hornets. He joined these ledgends in the club : Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem-Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone. Kobe was also the youngest player to do that at 34 years and 104 days. That’s a big milestone for Bryant. Even former Laker Magic Johnson said “he’s the best laker in history.” Now I’m reporting the Knicks : “J.R. SSMMIITTHH”!
J.R Smith did a little for a lot. With 3.4 seconds left in the 98-98 tie game vs Michael Jordan’s Bobcats. J.R Smith called a timeout, got the ball back with nearly 1 second left and shot a 20 ft buzzer beater to win the game. Before that shot he was 5-15 on field goals. Also some bad news Carmelo Anthony missed the last 2:10 and went in the locker room from a finger injury from diving in the crowd. He scored 23 pts in the win.
Now Pro football : Steelers : Coach Mike Tomlin says “I thought it was a positive day for Ben”. That means he’s getting closer to returning after missing 3 games. Vikings place WR/KR Percy Harvin on IR. Jets will start Sanchez over Greg McLroy. Tim Tebow was not a choice for starter after injuring ribs.
Now last but not least Baseball : Here’s some recent transitions : My least favorite Met Jason Bay signs 1 yr contract with Seattle Mariners. Orioles sign Nate McLouth to 1 yr deal. White Sox add Jeff Keppinger to 1 yr deal. Joe Blanton signs 2 yr deal with Angels. Here’s some pretty good news for the Yanks Jeter expects to be in opening day lineup. Mets don’t think it’s neccesary to sign Dickey.
